AIFF are supported with the new software!

Only standard AIFF are supported. Read #4 again. Maybe in a future update sowt will be supported??

can I have a 2nd output LCD monitor, a small one like 7" , so I can navigate from there
For music playback on the Oppo, I don't need to have my tv on. JRiver Media Center on my pc, and JRemote on my iPad/iPhone sending my networked flac library to the Oppo is all you will ever need for music playback.

To your first question: there is supposed to be something under development but no time line has been given.
To your second question: Several people have done this. It will have to have a resolution compatible with the Oppo and connect via HDMI. If you do a search in the various Oppo forums (this includes the 93/95) you will find suggested monitors that have worked.

Well that's absurd! Why not for those of us using Macs instead of PCs?

Peeking Under the Hood of the OPPO BDP-105


I found this interesting article in this blog (just scroll down a bit): http://audiophile-musings.blogspot.com/
It is a description of the stereo output circuit board with some interesting observations, followed by additional articles on direct connect to an amplifier and an article on its break-in.

Question about hooking up the Oppo 105. I have a 2CH system mixed in with my HT system. Currently I have the Oppo XLRs going directly to my 2CH preamp, and the 5.1 analog outs going to my older B&K AVR. Ideally, I'd like to get rid of the AVR altogether and just have everything (DirectTv box) connect directly to the Oppo and have it connect the 5.1 directly to my theater amps. The problem is that I don't like the 2CH sound of the 105 when using it's volume control. I was initially excited when I read that the volume control was 32bit and essential lossless, but my ears say otherwise, and it is not nearly as good as running it at 100% and letting my 2CH preamp do the volume (in my system). When it comes to HT, I'm just not as picky and wouldn't mind having the Oppo handle the volume. So ideally, I'd like the 2CH XLR's be set to Fixed Volume and the 5.1 (7.1) analog outs be set to variable. I haven't seen anything in the owners manual that makes this look possible. Any suggestions?

I have the 103 and really like it. I was looking into getting the 105 but not sure if it is worth the upgrade for me. The only 2 things I do with the 103 is play blu-ray movies and listen to 2 channel SACD music or regular CD music.

The 103 got too many features for me that I will never use. Would the 105 sound or video quality any better than the 103? Or does the 105 sound better while listening to 2 channel SACD music?

Thanks for any advice!!

You are fine with the 103 if you don't use analog!

Would OPPO ever consider Audyssey Multi EQ32X, or TACT® Dynamic Room Correction™ system, or Datasat?

I think you mean Dirac, not Datasat, as that is the EQ system using in the Datasat processor.  Of the available options, that is the most likely as they already license Dirac processing for their cell phones.  OTOH, I think the overall liklihood is negligible.

Instead of using preamp or avr for volume control I've decided to try -20db attenuators to bring listening volumes up - Oppo connected directly to power amp in my system

I was excited yesterday when the new FW was released. I downloaded it to my 105 and reset to Factory Defaults. And, yes...I did forget to adjust the volume of the player to something other than LOUD. I took the HDMI cable from the cable box, removed it from the TV and ran it to the 105. I tuned to YES to watch my beloved Yankees in HD AND listen to the game through my speakers. Well, let's just say, I went from 100ms to -100ms and the dreaded lip-sync issue is still there. I have just updated the cable boxes to new Samsung SMT-H3362 units. Am I the only one still with the lip-sync issues?

Looking to clarify the point made above regarding the latest firmware release. I am having lip sync problems like others ( even after upgrading to the latest firmware). I have connected my TIvo HD box (using Verizon Fios ) to the HDMI-in back, sending native signals from the Tivo.

The issue is, the audio is behind the video - i.e it is lagging behing the picture. To fix this, I assume I have to use a negative adjustment or cancel out the adjustment automatically applied by the Oppo 105. So I am a bit confused as to why the HDMI-in back only works with positive values? Most of the posts I have seen on this matter ( for people going through the HDMI-in back) . the audio is delayed so they need to cancel out the delay - How does this latest firmware fix this then? Or is there another way to do this for the HDMI-in back port?

thx

After reading all the "fixes" Oppo put into their new release, it looks like your above sated issue was not resolved....Here's text from the Oppo's firmware page detailing their fixes/known bugs. I copied an excerpt of text from bullet #15 on the support page....."We are aware of an occasional frame drop and audio/video synchronization issue that may still happen when accepting 480i, 576i or 1080i signals from certain cable boxes, and are working to resolve it in a future firmware version." I've been bypassing my cable box to the Oppo since day one....I guess we'll have to wait a little longer for a full resolution on this issue.

I'm not sure that would work for me. Even if I only turn the OPPO down 1 or 2 "clicks" from 100, I can immediately noticed the bloom and depth of the soundstage shrink. I can also notice "something sounds wrong" when I first turn the system on and play some music, when the setting is already below 100 (like if my wife accidentally changed it). It is almost as noticeable as when I'm not in Pure Audio mode. After doing that accidentally a few times, I went into the menu and set it to Fixed.

Hello all
I will upgrade my Blu-ray player to a new 3D Blu-ray player. I am thinking of Oppo and Philips. As the audio part of Oppo 105 is rated very very good, but it is expensive, I wonder if it is worth the money because it has a DAC . Is it worth the money? Or should I get a DAC instead and get the Oppo 103 or Philips 9700. Some friends say it is better a get a separate DAC and a separate 3D blu-ray player. Please give me some advise!
Many thanks.

My understanding - high quality analog volume control is nothing more than a resistor ladder.
Granted, high quality audiophile resistors should be used.
Quality attenuators provide the same, the only thing is - a single resistor is used and you can't change the volume.
Instead of buying really expensive preamp ( with resistor ladder) I opted out for buying a single resistor to bring the volume into manageable range(60-70 % on Oppo for normal listening level in my system) and than use Oppo digital volume for minor adjustment of the volume.
It works in my system

Which DAC?
Oppo replaced my $800 dollar DAC which I choose over many other DACs under 1000.

If money is not a consideration at all, you friends are 100% correct. You can get a better DAC and a better 3D player, but I couldn't find anything near the same price range.

Plus, count all the cables and preamp you have to put into your system if you have more than one anAlog source...
post #5301 of 10059
Guys- I have asked this in the 103 thread as well but since I own a 105 and this is more "audio centric", I thought I'd ask if anyone has had luck using the "Playlist" feature. I can add to the "Playlist" but I see no ability to create multiple playlist which is implied in the features of the new firmware. Has anyone been able to creat more than the one default playlist?

Thanks guys!!

I think he meant that you should do a factory reset in the Settings menu and then power off and on again. Then you can refresh the settings you had. You should, of course, write down your current settings before doing this.

The DAC is Wadia 121 or Onix DAC25B,what do you think?
is that more worth i get one of that DAC instead and get the Oppo 103 or Philips 9700?
What are the reason to choose Oppo 105 than i use separate DAC and get 103 or philips 9700?
Pls give some advice bcause im still not familiar with this smile.gif many thanks
